The Other Side


Wyrd has another preview they've posted for The Other Side, their upcoming miniatures game. This time around, it's a g-g-g-ghost! *leaps into a coworker's arms*

Yes, they're the Gwisin, strange apperitions in the service of Anton de Wils. Have yourselves a look.

Every time I see the name of this game, all I can think of is, "Break on through to the other side! Break on through to the other side! Everybody love my baby chicken!" Anyway, Wyrd has a new preview up for The Other Side. If you want more dakka, this is how you get more dakka. Check out the Gatling Gunners.

Wyrd Games loves to go all-out for Gen Con. And, I mean, why not? It's 4 days of gaming with tens of thousands of gamers from all over the world. For those that'll be at the show, they've posted up what Malifaux and The Other Side releases they'll have at the show.

They're also hiring a pair of game designers. Considered by many to be the "holy grail" of gaming jobs, if you think you have what it takes, send in your resume.

Break on through to The Other Side. Break on through to The Other Side.
Everybody loves my baby chicken.

Anyway, this week, Wyrd doesn't give us a new Malifaux preview. Instead, they're going for a trio of The Other Side previews. It's been a while since we've checked in with that game. It seemed like a good time to do it.

You know I love when I can see the rules for a game before I buy it. And that's just what Wyrd Games has done with The Other Side. Find out what's been going on in the real world while all sorts of things have been happening in Malifaux. The rulebook as well as unit stat cards are available to download now.

Ok, so it's actually the first day of June, but Wyrd had this up yesterday afternoon, so it was still May when it hit. Squeaking in just over the line, though. But better late than never, as this issue is filled with all sorts of information about Malifaux releases, Darkness Comes Rattling expansions, and The Other Side stuff, plus more.
Sometimes, you just need a bigger gun. When that's the case, you might want to call in a Rail Gunner. It's what's on preview today for Wyrd's The Other Side. And lemme tell you, I don't want to be on the wrong end of that thing when it goes off.
So, I don't know what it's like to be killed by a hitman. So I don't know what it's like just before you die. But I am going to assume it's a lot like when you realize a mariachi band is about to play on the train.
My apologies to John Mulaney for butchering that bit.
But we also have a look at a new miniature for The Other Side, the upcoming minis game from Wyrd. This week, they make our Friday better by giving us a look at the Sharpshooter.
As is their tradition, Wyrd has posted up their Friday preview for The Other Side. I'm always happy to see them, 1) because I like previews and 2) it means it's Friday. Well, this one, when it popped up, I was like, "whoah!" because it's a giant lizard/dragon thing named Horomontangi. Fridays need more giant lizard/dragons.
You know, most of the stuff for The Other Side has a sort of steampunk/old-timey look to it. Basically a Victorian-era aesthetic. Today's preview looks much more futuristic than that. As always on Fridays, Wyrd makes them that much better with their The Other Side preview. In this case, we get a look at the Marauder.
Wyrd brings all sorts of characters to their games. Malifaux's got quite a big cast of figures of all types. The Other Side will be no different. In this week's preview, we take a look at the Raving Madman. Because why not?
Today for lunch, they brought in Moe's. As it was free food, we all kinda dove onto it and went to town like mad. You'd think we'd not eaten in years! I think we were all Devouring Eels. Good thing that's what we get a preview of here in Wyrd's regular look at the upcoming The Other Side miniatures game.
Fridays are always made better by Wyrd's previews for The Other Side. Today's no different. Today, it's a look at the Mechanized Infantry for the Abyssinian forces. They've got cool machine guns, and the ability to pilot a mech, should its current driver be neutralized. Have yourself a look.
Well, I mean, I realize we just passed Valentine's Day, but the vibe I'm getting from the new The Other Side preview from Wyrd is decidedly more Halloween.
You know, I bet it's a real pain when you get something stuck in your eye that's in the middle of your back. That's gotta be annoying.
"Jamie wants big boom."
It's a rather iconic line from Mythbusters. And I'm sure Jamie would be wanting to add the Artillery Team for The Other Side to his army. It's certainly a big boom. Check it out in Wyrd's Friday Preview.
The Gibbering Horde is on display once more as Wyrd makes your Friday (a day which is already damn cool) even better. We get a look at the Speckled Crawler for The Other Side.
Fridays are pretty damn good all on their own. But then Wyrd has to go and make them even better with their regular previews. This week, we get another The Other Side one. It's The Broken for the Cult of the Burning Man (always kinda wanted to go to that). See what they'll be bringing to the party.
We all know how much I love Fridays, and today's shaping up to be a pretty damn good one. Of course, adding to the excitement is Wyrd's latest preview. This time around, it's a look at the Royal Rifle Corps for The Other Side.
Though it may be the new year, some things remain the same. I'm still in my same Friday shirt. I'm going to have pizza for dinner tonight. And we've got our regular Friday Preview from Wyrd. This time around, it's the Yarazi for The Other Side.
A long, holiday weekend is coming up. The only thing that could really make things better is a preview from Wyrd. And here we are! This time around, for their The Other Side preview, we get a look at the ECB Black Ops.
Fridays are already pretty damn awesome. Then Wyrd steps in with their regular Friday previews and things just get awesome-er. Hey, no red, squiggly line under it means that's a real word. Anyway, they continue their look at The Other Side with a preview of the Infiltrators. When the King's Empire needs to get information without their enemies knowing, they send in the Infiltrators. They'll get the job done right.
While I'm taking the day off, the folks over at Wyrd aren't. They've got their regular Friday preview up. This time, it's the Armored Whelk.
... Man, the last time I thought about whelks was the last time I watched that Monty Python skit where John Cleese does the nature documentary in the middle of the people's living room... Anyway, Armored Whelks (I'd name mine Lawrence).
You'd think that crows would fly, or just kinda walk. But these are Crow Runners. They're an Abyssinian unit for Wyrd's upcoming The Other Side minis game. And seeing how Wyrd loves to make Fridays as awesome as they can be, they've posted up a preview.
As if Friday wasn't already awesome enough (and it is), Wyrd has their regular previews they post up today. They are continuing their look at the upcoming miniatures game, The Other Side, with a preview from the Burning Man faction. This time around, it's the Warped. And "warped" is exactly what this model is. Check it out.
It's Friday. So that means a couple things. Mostly, me being excited about the weekend. But it also means that it's time for a new preview from Wyrd Games. They are continuing their series on The Other Side today with a look at the Empire Dragoons. Because a cavalry charge is still an effective way of dealing with enemies.
